This stool was very easy to assemble; sturdy, attractive and comfortable. It was too dark for my kitchen but I might have kept it anyway except I was alarmed by the warning on the box which stated that California State Proposition 165 required them to inform customers that the product contained chemicals that could cause cancer, reproductive difficulties or birth defects. With that, I returned it. I wish this warning had been on the website.
We bought 5 of these stools for our breakfast bar. They do look nice and were easy to put together. However now being used for a year, we have one stool where the screws have stripped themselves and a couple of other stools have become loose. If I knew that the stools were going to be used as much as they were, I would have spent the money on higher quality. Please take note that we have all teenagers and older kids. Also they are not even sat in everyday. Only when parties are held at our home.
They look really nice and are comfortable. Not cheap looking but not the best qulity. One broke within the first few months so I'm going to request a replacement part. Not bad but in retrospect wish I spent a little more for better quality.
Firstly, all my reviews are completely objective as to the pros/cons of each item so you get my genuine feelings about the purchase and whether I'd make it again, which is the most important question. Ordered on Wed., arrive on Mon. Construction was performed by my wife is not an overly handy person when it comes to that sort of thing so the fact that she was able to get it together without issue or complain does say something. Standard iron and hex/allen wrench construction. Construction didn't take overly long and she did have trouble getting the hex bolts tightened down enough to make it so the stools weren't a little rickety at first (back and legs). Took me about 1-2 minutes with each stool to get them tightened the correct amount. Not overly large but perfect size for what we were looking for. The have a nice secure and stable feeling to them and I'm 6'2"/190. No wobble to them at the seat or from the feet. The swivel isn't overly 'loose' which I like. The swivel easily but so easily that it's annoying. The picture representation is perfect. The seat has a good feeling and is soft. It's light colored so you will need to be careful with liquids/staining, etc. Looks like it would accept cleaning rather well. The colors are warm and work perfectly in the kitchen. Most importantly - Would I purchase again? Yes, and I just purchased one more as we decided we liked them well enough to add another one.
We didn't put these stools together because I realized the height was wrong for our counter. Looked good though. Ran into an issue with a similar model (metal backing etc) that was not strong enough and would "give" too much if you leaned back. Be aware of possible problems
saw these same chairs in a mega store for double the price, I couldn't believe it. These chairs are great they hold up to 250lbs which is rare now a days. i love theses chairs they fit nicely with my kitchen island. the color is actual to the picture. Assembly was easy no problems even for someone like my husband who is considered a "non-handy" man.
